Nigellas pasta risotto with bacon and peas

250g orzo
150g frozen peas
150g lean bacon (chopped all fat removed)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
600ml vegetable stock (boiling hot made from a cube is fine, you might need a bit more. )
low calorie spray oil
freshly ground pepper

Spray a large saucepan with spray oil and add the bacon and garlic and fry over a moderate heat for a few minutes then add the peas and fry for a few more minutes.
Add the orzo and the stock and stir well, Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Taste to see if pasta is cooked should still be a little firm most of the water should have been absorbed leaving the risotto quite creamy. If it is still not cooked add a little more water and cook for another couple of minutes.

Season with the pepper and serve immediately.
